in sanford, florida. it does not end there. the president then flies off to columbus, ohio. followed by a stop in des moines, iowa, before ending the day in his hometown of chicago, where he will likely watch the election results come in. governor romney visiting battleground states including virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. we are also told that he will not be arriving in his hometown of belmont, massachusetts, until overnight tonight. what do the candidates campaign stops reveal about their strategies? and also what their internal polling tells him? joining me now is chris stirewalt. and michael brown. let me start with you. what does it tell us? >> it sounds like mitt romney is very eager to keep the path to the presidency to him open. that is to win ohio. if he can close what seems to be a persistent that small gap in ohio, his chances of winning the overall presidency are much higher. that's what he wants to do. megyn: michael, what does it say about mitt romney campaign on election day. something obama is not going to do. >> we are seeing a close election in multiple states.
cleveland. tend to do well in the middle part of the street, franklin county, that is columbus. in the southwestern part of the state this will be a surprise to the republican party not only in hamilton county, cincinnati but also a republican party across the state. this is the county that they wanted to make blue and make it red again. had not been blue until 1964, it was reliably republican territory. but you lose votes down here when you don't win the county. the other area i want to point out is these are strong republican areas up in warren county. mitt romney did really well, 69% of the vote in that county alone. go back to 2004. you want to see what you need to win that state now? if president bush was at 72%. in a close race like this 2 and 3 points in counties like that can make the difference. mike tobin is live in columbus yet again this morning. mike, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, bill. if you want to look for a cause you can boil it down or simplify it to two words, auto bailout. and to back that up let's look at some of what we got from the exit poll.
every one, the latest came out this morning in the columbus dispatch. one thing that is clear, we have a very, very large lead among voters who have voted early. we are going to go into election day with a significant lead. and so, you know, we -- they can spin it any way they want. i am looking at cold, hard data, who is showing up, who is casting ballots and in states like ohio, iowa, nevada, florida, we are doing very, very well. what they are doing is comparing this to 2008 and you and i have thish this discussion, i am not suggesting we will win by the same margin of 2008. they are comparing themselves to john mccain with no ground operation in many of these states. so they will do better than mechanic cane did. we may not do as well as we did in 2008, but we are doing well enough to win this race. >> chris: in florida, where president obama is down by more than a point in the polls. and yet, you are advertising by the campaign there, in florida. why not in the state you must win? >> first of all, we feel very competitive in the state of florida. there have been a spate of polls i
out. in his last campaign event, the rally in ohio yesterday in columbus he appealed to people to get out to the polls themselves and find five other people to get out to the polls. he drew sharp contrast between his vision of america's future and the president's. >> he says it has to be this way. i say it can't stay this way. he's covering excuses. i'm offering a plan. [cheers and applause] >> i can't wait to get started. he's hoping we'll settle. but americans don't settle. we build, we aspire, we grow, we can do better, a better job, a better life for our kids, a bigger, better country.

, there was a "columbus dispatch" poll that democrats like to cite which shows that romney overperforming mccain by 22 points. to mccain's 11 points. the county to watch there is hamilton county. the very populated, swing county. this is very tight. early voting showed obama rehead. the democratic advantage is up. that and a absentee ballot wiped it out. >> dana: romney internal showed them up plus two in ohio. michael leavitt, health and human services secretary for bush, he started on the reagan campaign and he was so excite excited. he said you would go to ohio. he said i don't want to go to ohio. nothing happens there. he said you can't win as republican if you don't win ohio. i'm sure he is reminding them of that every day. >> eric: any surprise if romney wins ohio today? and president obama chose not to -- >> dana: biden went last minute today. >> bob: i don't know why he chose cuyahoga county. i think what they're probably trying to do is minimize votes in cuyahoga county. as andrea pointed out to me, suburban counties around it, have been republican, and obama did very well there. again, quest
right now. governor romney really has to rack up the count on his side of things. yesterday in columbus urging his supporters at a rally to get out there and get everyone they can get to the polls. here he is. >> some of you have been successful in convincing your neighbors to vote for paul ryan and me and i thank you for that. now let's make sure that everyone we know gets out to vote on times you're here because you care about america. this campaign is about america and about the future that we're going to leave to our children. we thank you and we ask to you stay at it all the way until victory on tuesday night is clear. >> for governor romney today will be all about two things. how the independents break and what kind enthusiasm there is out there for conservatives to get to the polls. i thought mike huckabee said something interesting this weekend when he said in terms of conservative enthusiasm in this country look back on the chick-fil-a controversy, who thought that so many people would line up around the block for a chicken sandwich? imagine what they'll do when it comes to vot
, a last effort to get out the vote. steve brown is in columbus this afternoon. steve, when ohio starts reporting their numbers, those will be early votes, favoring the president. do we have a sense of how much an edge he has from the early voting numbers? >>guest: analysis of the early voting is by the counties in which they were cast. you do not register as a democrat or a republican in this state so they do not have a good handle on can democrats or republicans early voted. but the former g.o.p. chairman in ohio looked at the distribution and he likes what he sees in terms of, perhaps, good news for governor romney. have a listen. >> if you look at the early vote in the counties that obama won in 2008, early vote is up 3 percent. if you look at the early vote town out in counties that were won by john mccain in 2008, it is up 14 percent. that is an advantage for governor romney. >> but he and other republicans in the state say definitely obama will start the night off with a lead when ohio starts reporting. >>shepard: we can get a sense of ohio in the early going after the polls clos
this morning in columbus, dispatch. what is clear, we have a very, very large lead among voter whose have voted early and we will go in election day with a significant lead. they can spin it out they want. i am looking at hold card data, who is casting ballots in states like ohio, iowa, nevada, florida. we are doing very well. they are comparing this to 2008 and we have had this discussion. i'm not suggest we will win by the same margin of 2008 and they compare themselves to john mc cain would had no ground operation in these states. they will do better than john mccain. we may not do as well as we did in 2008 but we doing plenty well and well enough to win the race. >>chris: on florida, president obama is down by more than a point in the polls but you make the final advertising by the campaign there in florida, why not in the state you must win? >> we feel very competitive in the state of florida. there have been many polls and in all of the polls, the battleground state polls in the last 48 hours we are ahead in 90 percent including florida. there are a couple of mixed polls in florida but we
. joining us today. welcome to have you here today. >> great to be with you from columbus, ohio. i know you have a big show out of ohio . so many believe that the fate of president obama and mitt romney hinges on that state . what are you hearing about the mood of the electorate. >> i think in the south it is tight as a tick on a dog which means it is very, very razor close. i do sense there is eye -- an momentum for mitt romney. there is energy on the part of the romney voters and you can see it when the crowds and voters and i don't see that barack obama. he his the union voterss and younger voters. but i don't see the enthusiasm and nothing like what that sort of the remarkable energy four years ago for him. >> the polls continuing and showing a tight race. and at this point, we are not seeing the president at 50 percent and when an uncumbent is not at 50 independents usually break away from the challenger in the final days of the campaign. >> that's the conventional wisdom in politicings. undecided voters break for the challenger because they know who the incumbent is. my goodness. they
